Life Skills
Grayson is still moseying his way through Ourselves by Charlotte Mason. Ambleside uses this over a couple of years and I suspect that it will be taking Grayson that long as well.


  1. I love the castle and shield. I'm going to steal the idea of looking up the info on the family name on line.

  2. Tea Time Poetry sounds like a great idea! What a neat week.
